About Natural World:
Natural World is a collaboration between John Edmonds, David Hartt, Jason Allen-Paisant, and Nathaniel M. Stein. The project explores the meanings of nature and naturalness through overlapping dialogues with history, collections, and institutions.
Hartt’s and Edmonds’s photography-based installations are presented in two dedicated galleries and selected sites throughout the museum. A companion book puts their work in conversation with new writing by Stein and Allen-Paisant.
Edmonds’s project, Father’s Jewels, is a profound meditation on family, reflecting identity, community, and belonging themes. Edmonds’s pictures explore wounding, conflict, reverence, and love within and between generations of Black men. They were conceived in dialogue with works from the museum’s African art collection and the European artistic tradition.
Hartt’s project, The Garden, examines ways of seeing and picturing rooted in European artistic, political, and intellectual traditions. Summarizing the concerns he has explored throughout his career, Hart focuses on plant life. He Focuses on the environment outside human-assigned physical parameters and social meanings. Both artists offer pivotal statements. They show what it might look like to include silenced positions in a shared conversation about nature.
